Easy, Healthy Turmeric Chicken in Lettuce Leaves

I love dinners that are easy to prepare, healthy, tasty, and are on the table quickly. This turmeric chicken in lettuce leaves falls into all of those categories. 


Eclectic Red Barn: Easy Turmeric Chicken in Lettuce Leaves


I modified a recipe that was in Katherine's Corner Recipe Box. She made chicken tacos and you can find her recipe here. 

I made my own marinade using key limes instead of limes since that is what I had on hand and added turmeric since it is so good for you. I marinaded the chicken for an hour and then cooked it on the stove. 

I decided to use lettuce leaves instead of flour or corn tortillas.

Make sure you have lots of condiments to top your turmeric chicken with. Add a side, I saute zucchini, mushrooms, and carrots.

You have a healthy and quick dinner that tastes great.
